Sowing Seeds

Lake Region Conference will embark upon a 10-day encampment, beginning Friday, June 21 through Saturday, June 24.

We are looking forward to inspiring worship programs, uplifting concerts and wonderful fellowship on the historic grounds of Camp Wagner in Cassopolis, Michigan. The theme for this year is “Sowing Seeds,” which is drawn from Hosea 10:12,  “Sow to yourself in righteousness, reap in mercy, and break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you.”  

Whether attendees are staying for just a few days or for the entire 10 days, we look forward to having programs and events for all ages that will sow seeds into their spiritual lives for now and eternity.
